I just received a phone poll that asked me seven questions related to Newton, including my opinion of Setti Warren, the Austin Street project and the possible development at the corner of Washington and Walnut Street.

But the most interesting two questions were about the Ward 2 At Large Alderman contest which stated that there were “three candidates” running for the position  — Susan Albright, Marcia Johnson and Jake  Auchincloss.

Yes, that’s right, the survey only wanted to know which of those three candidates I would vote for. There was no mention of the fact that there are actually five candidates running. Candidates Jess Barton’s and Lynne LeBlanc’s names were not mentioned and since it was a robo-poll there was no way to add them to the survey or answer “other.”
